I sort of want to call this Love, Faith, Potential, but I'm not entirely sold on that as a title.

This painting hasn't strayed from the original concept at all!
I basically ditched the original idea, as I found that my original approach wasn't successfully leading me to a desired destination. Or a destination at all... nevertheless, lesson learned! I have many new ideas on how to approach this concept next time I'm feeling up to it.
What is this we have here, then?
I reworked the theory that this piece of art should represent, and have made it a far more personal piece. The title Ernest vs. Honest is directly discussing my approach to art, and how sometimes I feel that my process can be quite driven, quite decorative, and not strong enough to have a final image in mind. All dressed up and nowhere to go is a phrase that is sometimes applicable to describe my thoughts of process, which is pretty daunting. Of course, art can be about the journey, but I still want to develop my abilities to realize a planned image, representing an idea with certain strength and enough detail that one could argue that the work does indeed support the theory. I want to be more proficient.
I'll get there.

This thing refuses to be the health painting I had planned for it... but I think it's looking pretty sweet anyways, so I think maybe it doesn't matter. Or maybe it can be a Biomedicalandscape fusion painting? No big deal. (I'm freakin' out man!)

This painting is a tester for some healthy paintings I've been having ideas about. It's got a fair way to go, but I thought I'd stick an "in progress" photo up (as usual).
What does this painting have anything to do with health?
Cells; some sort of structure; and health is messy? Eww!
Give me some time, I'll get back to you.
I started this drawing what seems like forever ago, and I was finally able to convince myself to work on it! It's complete, and going up at the restaurant with the rest of my artwork - how refreshing to get it out of the house so quickly after finishing it!
